” The invisible power of women’s circles on the women in them grows out of the power that people have on one another, which is extraordinary.  Anyone’s self-esteem, accomplishment, development of talent, has to do with whether we have been listened to and valued, loved for ourselves, encouraged and supported to do what we believed we could do.  When there is psychological or practical support for making a significant change, change is more likely to happen.  That other believe in us, or have the same perspective we have, or are role models, has a powerful and invisible effect.  The poser to resist the collective come from being in a small circle with like-minded others.  It allows us to keep on in the face of ridicule or opposition that we don’t know what we are talking bout, or don’ belong wherever it is that we want to be.”  (Jean Shinoda Bolen)

Later this year, I’ll invite you to another gathering of the Inspirata Collective.  Be sure you are receiving my emails!  Sign up HERE.
